In high school, Marisa picked up a few yoga VHS tapes, intrigued by the poses but not fully grasping the concept of the union of the breath, body and mind…only knowing she felt fantastic afterwards. It wasn't until years later that she attended her first class in Portland, Oregon and became hooked for life. After moving to Virginia, she found Yoga Goodness and, suffering from “mind stuff”, noticed that in her deepened practice, she learned to truly breathe and quiet her mind. Marisa studied under Om Yoga founder, Cyndi Lee, and completed her RYT 200 hour teacher training program in 2016. Immediately, Marisa knew she had found gold and wanted to spread her love of yoga with others. Constantly doing something active, she enjoys snowboarding, kayaking, hiking, Crossfit and (to keep it balanced, of course) enjoying a good craft beer in her spare time. Look for her teaching everyone from kids to brand new beginners to athletes! She likes to have fun while she teaches and encourages laughter and leaving your ego at the door.
The Yoga Goodness Studio is in the historic Riverviews building in downtown Lynchburg, VA where you will enjoy beautiful views of the James Rivers.
